From the Community Enrichment Fitness Network:
Holy Spirit Evangelical Church in Castor Gardens hosted the Focus on Fitness Community Day Saturday to help Northeast residents get healthy together. The health and fitness event, sponsored by the Community Enrichment Fitness Network, featured guests from CEFN’s TV show Focus on Fitness. The TV show guests had healthy food and exercise demonstrations. There was also live entertainment from the R&B band the Expressions of Soul, and performances by saxophonist Kenny Sykes and DJ Howard Cuppitt.
The purpose of the event was two-fold: To increase awareness of CEFN’s TV show, which airs on Comcast cable channels 66 and 966 and Verizon Fios channels 29 and 30, and to recognize CEFN’s production team and program guests. Sherry Hill, CEFN founder and executive director, said she was very pleased with being able to publicly thank the public access TV station, PhillyCAM and Temple University interns for the outstanding job they are doing with producing, directing, editing and writing Focus on Fitness.
Although the event was not widely publicized, attendees still had a great time participating in activities like Gospel line dancing, Zumba (an exercise routine that’s a combination of Latin dances), kickboxing and chair exercises. Temple University’s Women’s Volleyball Team took center stage participating in the Gospel line dancing demonstration. After working up a sweat from the day’s activities, attendees not only had the opportunity to have some healthy snacks like green smoothies and apple pizza, but they were also instructed on how to easily prepare them at home.
The second annual Focus on Fitness Community Day is tentatively set for June 2011.
